Badgers Take The Lead

LAS VEGAS, Nev.- Wisconsin just can't get ANYTHING going on offense here in the second half. The UNLV defense is swarming, giving Donovan no time, and when he does get off a pass, his receiver either drops it or they are hit so hard, the ball pops loose.

But the Wisconsin defense came up with a huge play. DB Shane Carter picked off the Travis Dixon pass and returned it 35 yards to the UNLV 39 yard line with under 13 minutes to play in the game.

On 3rd and four, guess what? ANOTHER dropped pass, it was well short of a first down, but Kyle Jefferson had the ball go off his finger tips as he was hit very, very hard. So was Tyler Donovan.

So then the Badgers lined up for a 51 yard field goal, Taylor Mehlhaff drilled it to give Wisconsin a 12-10 lead with 12:22 to play. His career-long is 52, coming last season against Arkansas in the Capital One Bowl.
